June 26, 1986. The Grateful Dead, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Dylan with Petty and Band backing.

The worst Dead show I ever went to. This place was not designed for acoustics. We even snuck on to the floor to get better spots. I remember enjoying the Dead but the sound being very poor - the acoustics of the place, aargh! Dylan was pretty bad - it was years before I would venture to see him again and have seen him do some awesome shows. Tom Petty and his band kind of stole the show and blew everyone away. At this point I pulled back from Dead shows, thought the stadiums were for sports not music. Had been spoiled by some smaller venues earlier.

We had been very fired up for this trio of bands and felt fairly let down with this. Still had fun though because of being with my deadhead crew.

What about the swastika on the ceiling? Isn't that odd? And why do the networks ALWAYS show the swastika during national broadcasts?

Just wondering if anybody else has wondered.
